  • Buck O'Neil: national treasure, living legend and still going strong at 92. He was in Boston this weekend to help celebrate Jackie Robinson's birthday and Gordon Edes of the Boston Globe was on hand to hear his famous tales of what it was like in the Negro Leagues.

  • Could the Tigers stand to add some more starting pitching? Yes. Will they add some more? Not sure. Lynn Henning discusses the matter in the Detroit News and throws out a couple of names who haven't been getting much play lately: Chuck Finley and John Burkett.

  • Is Super Bowl Sunday a little early for a World Series prediction? Not for Jim Salisbury. His choices? Read them in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
